, more especially as we discussed today, being a person who has to use prosthesis and whilst ad nit knell has argued but why, in the same vain, would the accused get involved in a fight at melrose arch, or discharge a firearm under the table? i think what we are seeking to establish is the ends to which one would go to save himself, and in advocate knell's scenario i don't think that falls so much for consideration. the issue before me is whether this accused, being who he is, and with the assets that he has in the country would possibly want to seek to duck and dive all over the world when, even by the state's own concession, he may at worst case scenario face cull possibly whom tide. in as much as the minimum sentence legislation may be applicable there is a professionition for special circumstances or substantial and compelling circumstances which would cause the trial judge to deviate so it may not necessarily be the case that he is now committed to face 15 years imprisonment or life in prison. i cannot find that the accused or i cannot find that it has been established that the accus

protective foot covering. robyn curnow is covering the trial for us in pretoria, south africa. >> reporter: good morning, we've just seen oscar pistorius drive past us in a police van, sirens blaring, the police had covered the windows, you know, cameras literally rushing to try and get a picture of him. they didn't. but today, despite his really, really sad quite traumatized demeanor in the past few days, today i must say he seemed quite confident in court. he was at least sitting up straight. he wasn't hunched over. his hands buried in his head, as has been the case in the past few days and i think good reason in a way. his family and himself to be confident because as you mentioned, his defense team really punching holes in the state's evidence. in a way discrediting them, even weakening their evidence. so does that change the ball game? will the magistrate soften his views? will he give him bail? he'll appear tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. local time as that decision is made. >> robyn curnow from south africa. we want to bring in call callan, good morning, paul. >> good morning. >> the story k
